May 15 - British General: No Increased Threat From Iran, Aggression Coming From Washington
 

 
image

Maj. Gen. Chris Ghika said during a briefing on Tuesday that "there's been no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces."

A British general threw a wrench into the Trump administration's narrative that Iran is plotting attacks on American troops in the Middle East by telling reporters gathered at the Pentagon Tuesday that "there's been no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces" in the region.

"We monitor them along with a whole range of others because that's the environment we're in," said Maj. Gen. Chris Ghika, speaking via video from Baghdad. "If the threat level seems to go up then we'll raise our force protection measures accordingly."

Apparently eager to squash the general's remarks, the U.S. Central Command issued a statement just hours later disputing Ghika's comments and repeating national security adviser John Bolton's unsubstantiated claim that American intelligence has "identified credible threats" from "Iranian-backed forces" in Iraq and Syria.

The public dispute came as anti-war voices and foreign policy analysts warned that the United States, led by Bolton, may be attempting to manufacture a false pretext to justify launching a war with Iran.

As Common Dreams reported on Tuesday, U.S. officials are—without any concrete evidence—attempting to blame Iran for attacks on oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz over the weekend.

The effort to pin the tanker attacks on Iran came just over a week after Bolton used the planned deployment of an American aircraft carrier and bomber task force to the Persian Gulf to threaten Iran with military action and warn—again, without evidence—of "escalatory indications" from Iran.

According to the New York Times—which reported Monday that President Donald Trump has reviewed a Bolton-crafted plan to send 120,000 troops to the Middle East to threaten Iran—Trump administration officials are having a difficult time convincing America's European allies to join them on their march to war.

As the Times reported Tuesday:

Intelligence and military officials in Europe as well as in the United States said that over the past year, most aggressive moves have originated not in Tehran, but in Washington—where John R. Bolton, the national security adviser, has prodded President Trump into backing Iran into a corner.

One American official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss confidential internal planning, said the new intelligence of an increased Iranian threat was "small stuff" and did not merit the military planning being driven by Mr. Bolton. The official also said the ultimate goal of the year long economic sanctions campaign by the Trump administration was to draw Iran into an armed conflict with the United States.

The anonymous American official's a*sessment aligns with that of foreign policy observers, who have urgently warned in recent days that the Trump administration is escalating tensions with Iran in an effort to provoke an attack and spark an all-out war.

"John Bolton is methodically setting the stage for war with Iran—forcing Iran into a corner and then readying war plans for when Iran takes the bait," Jamal Abdi, president of the National Iranian American Council, said in a statement on Monday.

Iran has thus far acted with restraint in the face of U.S. belligerence, urging diplomacy and attempting to restart negotiations with Europe over the terms of the Iran nuclear accord.

With tensions between the two nations reaching dangerous levels, U.S. Democratic presidential candidates have joined progressive anti-war groups in vowing to oppose the Trump administration's efforts to start a military conflict with Iran.

In a speech streamed online Tuesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said "a war with Iran would be an absolute disaster."

"The United States Congress must do everything it can," said Sanders, "to prevent the Trump administration's attempts to put us on the brink of a catastrophic and unconstitutional war with Iran that could lead to even more deaths than the Iraq War."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) echoed Sanders in a tweet Tuesday night, announcing her decision to co-sponsor a bill aimed at stopping a war with Iran.

"We cannot let the Trump admin drag us into yet another war in the Middle East," Warren wrote. "This is exactly why the president doesn't have the constitutional authority to declare war. That's Congress's job—and that's why I'm supporting this legislation to prevent a war with Iran."

One of the top generals of our closest ally is openly calling our President and his war hawks a lie.

I remember when Bush was in office and every lie he told Tony Blair and his generals doubled dow and agreed with him.

This is the 2nd in command of all troops in Iraq. Not just British military. The whole joint task force in Iraq.

He said if there were any real threats they would act accordingly. You think he's going to put his people in danger just to slander trump?

Bolton is the one that came up with "Weapons of Mass Destruction" too.

Back in the Republican debates, trump repeatedly talked about how going into Iraq was mistake. When he was still going against Jeb Bush.

What trump do? Hire one of the main guys behind that.

The thing to remember is that the WMD lie wasn't created for Americans. They were still bloodthirsty from 9/11 and didn't really need a reason to invade Iraq. That it was a country full of muslims was enough.

The lie was to get other countries on board. Something that could be told to people in those countries to justify their participation in the invasion.

I don't think trump cares if other countries will join the US position on Iran. He seems to relish in pissing people off. Someone posted earlier about how Spain is pulling out of the situation. I don't think that will be a deterrent to Bolton or trump. They will go all in unilaterally.

It will be tricky. Iran and the EU are still negotiating to try and save the nuclear deal. If the US & Iran begin to f*ght. Will the EU continue to try and negotiate with someone at war with their ally.

I don't know. Are we still allies with the EU? trump's foreign policy has fu*ked so many things up. The picture is a lot more murky than used to be.

Bravo to Iran, they saw the western imperialist agenda back in the 50s and took steps to protect their culture from it. If it weren't for the aggressive display and nuclear program, the colonizers would've turned Tehran into Baghdad.



Big surprise a GOP president wants "war" with an oil rich country. Never mind that Iran is very liberal as far as rights go for its citizens, so they don't have an excuse to go to war.

Newly disclosed emails show that Libya’s plan to create a gold-backed currency to compete with the euro and dollar was a motive for NATO’s intervention.

The Israel-Palestine Conflict: A Collection of Essays by Jeremy R. Hammond

GET IT NOW
The New Year’s Eve release of over 3,000 new Hillary Clinton emails from the State Department has CNN abuzz over gossipy text messages, the “who gets to ride with Hillary” selection process set up by her staff, and how a “cute” Hillary photo fared on Facebook.

But historians of the 2011 NATO war in Libya will be sure to notice a few of the truly explosive confirmations contained in the new emails: admissions of rebel war crimes, special ops trainers inside Libya from nearly the start of protests, Al Qaeda embedded in the U.S. backed opposition, Western nations jockeying for access to Libyan oil, the nefarious origins of the absurd Viagra mass r*pe claim, and concern over Gaddafi’s gold and silver reserves threatening European currency.

Hillary’s death Squads
A March 27, 2011, intelligence brief [archived here] on Libya, sent by long time close adviser to the Clintons and Hillary’s unofficial intelligence gatherer, Sidney Blumenthal, contains clear evidence of war crimes on the part of NATO-backed rebels. Citing a rebel commander source “speaking in strict confidence” Blumenthal reports to Hillary [emphasis mine]:

Its the same sh*t over and over. Its the same reason we entered the recent war against "Isis" and Syria


he Qatar-Turkey pipeline was a proposal to build a natural gas pipeline from the Iranian–Qatari South Pars/North Dome Gas-Condensate field towards Turkey, where it could connect with the Nabucco pipeline to supply European customers as well as Turkey. One route to Turkey was via Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Syria,[1][2] and another was through Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iraq.[3][4] Syria's rationale for rejecting the Qatar proposal was said to be "to protect the interests of [its] Russian ally, which is Europe's top supplier of natural gas."[1]

Theory relating to Syrian conflict
In 2012 an analyst cited by Ansa Mediterranean suggested that Qatar's involvement in the Syrian Civil War was based in part on its desire to build a pipeline to Turkey through Syria:
"The discovery in 2009 of a new gas field near Israel, Lebanon, Cyprus, and Syria opened new possibilities to bypass the Saudi Barrier and to secure a new source of income. Pipelines are in place already in Turkey to receive the gas. Only Al-Assad is in the way. Qatar along with the Turks would like to remove Al-Assad and install the Syrian chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood. It is the best organized political movement in the chaotic society and can block Saudi Arabia's efforts to install a more fanatical Wahhabi based regime. Once the Brotherhood is in power, the Emir's broad connections with Brotherhood groups throughout the region should make it easy for him to find a friendly ear and an open hand in Damascus." [5]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The United States formed diplomatic relations with Qatar on 19 March, 1972, when diplomat William Stoltzfus met with Qatari government officials and submitted his credentials.[2] Bilateral relations between the two countries has expanded in since the opening of the U.S. embassy in Doha in March 1973.[3] The first resident U.S. ambassador arrived in July 1974. Qatar and the United States coordinate closely on Middle Eastern regional diplomatic initiatives to increase security in the Persian Gulf. The two countries also have extensive economic links, especially in the hydrocarbons sector.[4] Qatar has also developed international educational institutions in the region to cater to the Middle Eastern market. Qatar also hosts an American military facility.[5]

Why Iran is now a target


On Sept. 27, thousands of Iranians attended the funeral of Mohsen Hojaji, an Iranian soldier who was captured and behe*ded by the Islamic State. He was hardly the first Iranian casualty in Syria. As the head of Iran’s Martyrs Foundation announced a few months ago, the death toll among Iranian forces in the Syrian civil war has passed 2,100. Yet despite high fatalities in 2015 and 2016, polls suggest that Iranian public support for the military involvement has remained strong. What explains this continued support?

My research suggests that religious motivations, strategic calculations and efficient use of troop deployment have convinced a majority of Iranians of the need for their nation’s involvement in the Syrian civil conflict.

Who are the Iranians f*ghting in Syria?

Since the beginning of the civil war in Syria in 2012, Iran has had a growing presence in the country. Data I have collected from Persian online sources show at least 349 Iranian nationals — usually referred to as martyrs in these contexts — k*lled in Syria and, to a limited extent, Iraq in the past five years. This data set covers a longer period (January 2012 to July 2017) than other estimates and reports, and it shows a larger number of fatalities with more detailed information on social and occupational characteristics of those k*lled. The information collected from obituaries, the martyrs’ biographies and interviews with their families provide useful insight into the scope of Iran’s involvement in Syria.

You are missing a few pieces there. France was the lead on the operation in Libya. They brought NATO into it. As a member of NATO, the US was obligated to offer support. Not saying it wasn't done willingly. But, there's a lot more to the story than Hillary wanted to attack Libya. The gold dinar story is not credible to me either. Qaddafi had no support for his plan.

The Syrian pipeline story never made sense. a*sad could be taken out very easily. Look at Qaddafi and Saddam Hussein. There's been restraint shown in Syria that makes me believe there are other goals there.

US war hawks have had a hard on for Iran since the '79 revolution. This ain't nothing new and not caused by any recent activity by Iran. The Iraq/Iran war was the US trying to "defeat" Iran by proxy. By all accounts, Iran was keeping up their part of the nuclear deal. The US is the one that blew it up.

To understand what it happening now. You have to go back to why McMasters was fired and Bolton got into his position.

Adelson's influence has spread across the Trump administration. In August 2017, the Zionist Organization of America, to which the Adelsons are major donors, launched a campaign against National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. ZOA chief Mort Klein charged McMaster “clearly has animus toward Israel.”

Adelson said he was convinced to support the attack on McMaster after Adelson spoke with Safra Catz, the Israeli-born CEO of Oracle, who “enlightened me quite a bit” about McMaster, according to an email Klein later released to the media. Adelson pressed Trump to appoint the hawkish John Bolton to a high position, The New York Times reported. In March, Trump fired McMaster and replaced him with Bolton. The president and other cabinet officials also clashed with McMaster on policy and style issues.


Sheldon Adelson and his wife were the largest donors to trump's 2016 campaign with $20 million. The are seeing what that money bought them.


I also think what is happening in Iran is getting lost in all the other bullsh*t surrounding trump. The failed trade policy has people trying to keep track of that. The presidential election is getting into full swing. It's important to hear from people outside the US that are not caught up in the latest antics of our reality TV president.

the UK doesn't want to get involved, then have to apologize like Tony Blair did years after the Iraq invasion

I think the US doesn't go in without NATO... and I also think that Trump/Israel is desperate enough to get rid of Iran so much that they'll false flag an attack again to invoke Article 5 of the NATO treaty (one country gets attacked, everyone has to f*ght)

I also think that if everyone sat back and waited Trump out, they'll be alright. 18 months until the next presidential election, and I don't think Trump comes out on top again.

Not saying it wasn't done willingly. But, there's a lot more to the story than Hillary wanted to attack Libya. The gold dinar story is not credible to me either. Qaddafi had no support for his plan.

The Syrian pipeline story never made sense. a*sad could be taken out very easily. Look at Qaddafi and Saddam Hussein. There's been restraint shown in Syria that makes me believe there are other goals there.

US war hawks have had a hard on for Iran since the '79 revolution. This ain't nothing new and not caused by any recent activity by Iran. The Iraq/Iran war was the US trying to "defeat" Iran by proxy. By all accounts, Iran was keeping up their part of the nuclear deal. The US is the one that blew it up.

To understand what it happening now. You have to go back to why McMasters was fired and Bolton got into his position.





Sheldon Adelson and his wife were the largest donors to trump's 2016 campaign with $20 million. The are seeing what that money bought them.


I also think what is happening in Iran is getting lost in all the other bullsh*t surrounding trump. The failed trade policy has people trying to keep track of that. The presidential election is getting into full swing. It's important to hear from people outside the US that are not caught up in the latest antics of our reality TV president.
Hillary was nothing more then sec of state....she didnt have the authority to go to war with anyone. Nor did Obama for that matter. And despite how you feel about it, SEVERAL experts have confirmed that the US invasion was behind the gold for oil exchange....the email only confirms it

And Isil or Isis which was backed by the US was put in place to over take Asad which was not easy...if it was then the rebels would not have needed outside a*sistance in the first place ie ISIS.

Putin ended Isis in less then 2 weeks...and ended that strategy.

--------
Iran

— Who it supports: Tehran has supported the a*sad government since at least 2012, giving the regime extensive military aid in the form of training, weapons and intelligence sharing. It has also deployed Iran's elite military force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and Shiite militias from across the region. Its ally Hezbollah in Lebanon is also a major backer of the a*sad regime.

— Who it's f*ghting against: Iran has directly and indirectly been f*ghting against both moderate and extremist factions in the Syrian opposition, as well as IS.

— What it wants: Syria has long been Iran's chief ally in the Middle East. Propping up a*sad ensures an ally against Iran's regional rivals, Israel and Saudi Arabia. Tehran also needs Syria to transport weapons to Hezbollah, which also opposes Israel, in neighboring Lebanon. Iran's larger goal is to create a land corridor extending from Iran to Lebanon through Iraq and Syria.

— Which peace talks it supports: Iran joined the Geneva peace talks in November 2015 after the US dropped its longstanding opposition to Iranian involvement. Tehran has also sponsored the Astana peace talks along with Turkey and Russia.



ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY...The US gives two fu*ks about helping refugees especially ones of color...its always about money and protecting the dollar...ALWAYS...
